This world is full of idiots! As much as I hate to say it, I am one too. I still get triggered at the stupidest remarks that have nothing to do with me. I get angry and rage, then have a hard time finding my center again.
If I see you hurting another living being, I will hurt you. Then, someone who loves you will hurt me, and someone who loves me will hurt them, and on and on we go on this spiraling wheel. Is it not the reason for most wars? The need to protect?
Some can torture a child and kill him, and get away with a slap on the hand. Some can bomb a whole city from afar, killing everyone from babies to grandmothers, and think they have done it for the good of humanity. I do not need to name the atrocities that us 'humans' can do to each other. It just makes me sick.
My life is peaceful. I created it that way even though I do not come from a trauma free environment. I also have a very thick shell and don't let many people get near me. Maybe it is the price to pay to have my peaceful life. I go out in this world, in very dark places, and I can't wait to get home and shut the door.
As much as I fill myself with Love and healing, there is still a big part of me that is as ugly as can be.
I do not think that I could give the Love that this man was given.https://youtu.be/afvN6se3Yug
If you feel that you can’t smile, stand before a mirror and with your fingers pull your mouth into a smile. It is that important! Yogananda
